Hi! 
Happy freaking Friday. I’d much rather you be doing something life-giving to kick off your weekend, so I’m going to keep this brief and chat more tomorrow. Maybe all Fridays will be my Friday Five — a short list of 5 things to send you off into your weekend. Yeah. I don’t know. Let’s try that. 

1. It's a new day.
It’s funny how everyone let’s the time of the day dictate the beginning or the end. If I’ve had a weird morning, why can’t I just spin around and decide it’s a new day, right then, at 10:03am? You know what, I can, and I did. This morning, I backed into Sean’s motorcycle with my car, then got a ticket for an unrelated thing… all before 8:30am. I decided that it’s Friday, and that everything before 8:30am was not Friday. So my day, right now, is perfect. Hope yours is too. 
2. MUSIC.
Abby C, a lovely stranger turned-friend (is that okay with you Abby?) wanted to know what music is filling my ears these days. The Lord heard Abby’s plea and asked Spotify to release a playlist of all the songs I listened to most this year. Groooove my friends, groove.

3. A response about responding to responses.
I kid you not, I’ve gotten so many comments, emails, texts, direct messages, yada yada yada that I literally cannot keep up with them… and I love it. Don’t let this be a deterent from writing in. I read everything, and if I haven’t responded to you already, I will this weekend. Your stories, your tears, your laughs — all of it means everything to me. I am overwhelmed by joy and gratitude. Truly. Thank you.
4. Speaking of responses...
My dad sent me this today. ❤️

5. Don't be this person.
And by this person, I mean all the people who saw this floating Juice Shop tag on my elbow for ~4 hours and didn’t think to point it out. 
Lean in close. I want to tell you something. 
Are you here? 
Closer. 
Okay.
IT WAS NOT FLOATING. IT WAS ATTACHED TO ME. VIA GUM. MY GUM.
If you see something, say something. 
See you tomorrow, 
Taryn
